Photographer's Note

"Dur Khaima" or the Far Pavilions !
Though M.M Kaye meant the lofty Himalayas in the book of that name ,the monastery at Stakna shot here is representative of the same !!

Three of the elements that make up the world Earth, Wind ( in the fluttering Flags) and Water are here in all their glory.
The river is the Indus from where India gets its name...photographed here 700 kms down from the Mansarover Lake, in China, where it originates.

I could not post it from Leh as there was no elecricity last evening and no phones.

However hard we may try to civilise Ladakh it will always remain one of those unconquerable frontiers!
